The Ultimate Cookie

Folder: 
A New View

.

It is the feeling of being left

standing in the road, blocking traffic,

causing drools, making bakers

pooh pooh each bite.

.

We rebelled and declared a

no nibble zone. In defense

of crisp brown edges and yummy

centers, I do declare:

"I'm going to need that later."

.

Until the road ahead is cleared,

there will be no passage granted.

Until the debris is swept away

and new cookies replace the old

cookies, no one passes go.

.

I defy decades of female principals

strewn across the street, stacked 

neat and high. You have to go.

Make room for the new from the oven

delight that comes replete with a

vacuum cleaner. There is, unfortunately,

nothing that can be done about those

who came before who are now merely

chalked outlines to be mourned.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The old gives way to the new. Bookstores vs on line novels, typewriters vs comptuer keybords and printers. Old cookies vs new cookies. Like that. :D
